Yes, a massage chair could help your back considerably, as the rollers built into the chair can actually relieve tension and loosen the muscles by stretching them.
This can amazingly ease soreness and stiffness and do so in a very short time. Most people find a pleasant rejuvenating effect from sitting in a massage chair for even 15-30 minutes.
These chairs can cost from about $700 to $5000, but most feel they are well worth the money.
Spending thousands for a massage chair is economical, especially if the alternative is lots of money on massage therapists.
Massage chairs can be small with just a few different programs or they can be the more expensive models with as many as 8 programs plus an extensive manual operation. Both preprogrammed and manual operations are usually controlled on a remote, which is very easy to use.
Having a massage chair at home where you can use it every day to relieve tension and soothe aching muscles could be one of the best investments you make.
You can choose operations on the remote for stretching, compression, kneading, rolling and sometimes tapping. Some say it feels like a massage therapist is working you over.
Stretching muscles by having a chair roll and knead across your body is a great way to ease soreness and sometimes even relieve spasms, as well as stress and tension.
Massage chairs today can be very high tech products that truly improve mobility and posture making you more productive at work and play and actually rejuvenating your whole body. I use mine every day.
